la_sherazade showed me a dandy little link that has a template to make your own pretty paper Christmas ornaments. Well I was inspired and I have made my own.
My blue fairy!
My Mother works in a shop that carries vintage and obscure pieces of scrap and trim so she has given me so beautiful pieces over the years and I took one piece and used it for the bodice of her dress and then I made a small tutu-style skirt using some ribbon. I made the wings out of vellum paper I keep around. It looks so beautiful at night with the Christmas lights on.
I am now looking through the rest of my scrap for other ideas of dresses and characters I can create.
